NextImg:Biden chats with US hostages freed by Hamas in video: ‘Glad you’re out’

The White House posted a brief clip of President Biden’s phone call with two newly freed American hostages Saturday morning to celebrate their release from Gaza — and to highlight ongoing US diplomatic efforts ahead of a looming Israeli invasion.

“Hey Judith,” Biden greeted Judith Raanan, 59, who was abducted with her 17-year-old daughter Natalie when Hamas stormed Kibbutz Nahal Oz on Oct. 7.

The women, of Evanston, Ill., were visiting family for the Jewish holidays.

“I’m so glad you’re home – or, not home, but glad you’re out,” Biden told mother and daughter on the Friday call, according to the video shared on X.

“Hey, Nat, how are you? God love ya,” Biden said. “I’m just delighted we were able to get you out, we’ve been working on it a long time.”

The two women – who were released by Hamas on Friday after almost two weeks in captivity – thanked the commander-in-chief for his support of Israel.

“We’re going to get ‘em all out – God willing,” Biden promised, referring to 10 other missing Americans who are suspected to have been taken by the terror group.

The US and several European allies are urging Israel to hold off on its ground invasion in hopes of negotiating the release of the 210 hostages who remain in Gaza.
